Hines v. Stein, 298 U.S. 94 (1936)
Hines v. Stein
Argued April 6, 7, 1936
Decided April 27, 1936
298 U.S. 94
A state court which has appointed a guardian for an incompetent veteran has authority to order payment, out of funds belonging to the veteran and in the hands of such guardian, of a reasonable sum for services and expenses of an attorney who represented the guardian in a claim before the Veterans' Administration for reinstatement of the veteran's compensation. Executive and administrative regulations (pursuant to Acts of Congress, 48 Stat. 9; U.S.C. Title 38, §§ 111, 114, 115) limiting the fees of attorneys in pension matters are inapplicable, and do not prevent. P. 298 U. S. 97.
118 Pa.Super.Ct. 549; 180 A. 577, affirmed.
Certiorari, 297 U.S. 700, to review the affirmance by the court below of an order of the Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania granting permission to the guardian of an incompetent veteran to pay fees and expenses of an attorney at law. Hines, the petitioner here, had intervened. The Supreme Court of the State refused an appeal.
